We’ve gotten used to Mika being pedal-to-the-metal kool-aid-drinking crazy on political issues. But her hot take on Kavanaugh just made more sense than the entire Democrat party.
What happened to Mika?
Suddenly, she’s looking like a ‘calling balls and strikes’ media talent.
She is about as fair as anyone can reasonably be on the issue. She’s ready to hear Dr. Ford make her case about events as she remembers them from almost four decades ago, but hasn’t assumed Kavanaugh’s guilt, either.
But the REAL surprise is what she said about the Republicans in the Senate. When the rest of the Media(D) from Acosta right on down are ready to see Kavanaugh’s head on a plate, Mika has a very different understanding.
It’s refreshingly — nuanced??
From Mika? Is this the same Mika?
Yes, unlikely as it seems, it sure is.
Go see for yourself:
Where so many voices among the ‘Democrats with press passes’ are taking a hard party-line stance like this one…
.@SenGillibrand tells @Acosta that Professor Ford shouldn't be "bullied" into Monday's hearing, and that without an FBI investigation or corroborating witnesses, "it's a sham hearing, and I don't think she should participate in it."

Mika had the integrity to go the other direction.
She was honest about the situation the Republican Senators find themselves in.
After affirming the need to give Dr. Ford a reasonable opportunity to present her position, Mika turned her attention to the looming what-if-she-doesn’t-testify scenario:
Now, however, some could argue that Ford’s refusal to testify absent an FBI investigation is “moving the goal post in an impossible direction. So we need to hear from her. And that’s why everybody is open to hearing from a woman, but if she doesn’t want to speak, if she doesn’t want to testify, you have to wonder what the Republicans really are supposed to do except demand a vote.”
Demand a vote.
That sure would make a great hashtag campaign, wouldn’t it?
Oh, that’s right, it already IS one.
What Jim Acosta, Rachel Maddow and the Rest of The Media (D) STILL haven’t figured out yet is why we call them ‘Fake News’.
Let’s spell it out for them. In a shirt.
Because you know they won’t be able to figure it out on their own.
There’s a ladies’ version…
And a men’s version…
The problem isn’t just the lies they tell…
It’s the truth they DON’T tell…
And the opinions laced right through them.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
